"Now I, friend, drink to you, friend,
As my friend drank to me,

And the more we drink together, friend,
The merrier we will be!"

Joke of The Day

 A drunk gets up from the bar and heads for the bathroom. A few minutes later, a loud, blood-curdling scream is heard coming from the bathroom. A few minutes after that, another loud scream echo's through the bar.
The bartender goes into the bathroom to investigate what the drunk is screaming about. What's all the screaming about in there? You're scaring my customers!"
The drunk responds, "I'm just sitting here on the toilet and every time I try to flush, something comes up and squeezes the hell out of my balls."
The bartender opens the door and looks in. You idiot! You're sitting on the mop bucket!

Quote of The Day

"Beer will always have a definite role in the diet of an individual and can be considered a cog in the wheel of nutritional foods."
- Bruce Carlton
